Mean Names


The head-thing Norway and Denmark are doing is a replacement for hugging, because hugs look so awkward with their tiny bodies and giant heads.

Anyway, I was talking with a fellow Dane about the various mean names Scandinavians have given each other, and we realised that for some odd reason the Danes never came up with a name for their nemesis, the Swedes. We therefore came to the conclusion that “Swedes” was considered a sufficiently mean word in itself. :XD:

It's better to be talked about badly than not talked about at all

Iceland sometimes calls Denmark "Beanland." That's about the only "name calling" from Iceland (though it's not really negative, it's just because Denmark is so green vs. Iceland's rustic landscape). Oh, well, recently we've come to call Norwegians kidnappers, because they're trying to take away an Icelandic child that lived with its mother for two years in Norway. The grandmother fled with the child to Iceland, hoping for protection here because the mother was seen as being an unfit parent (though she has gone through therapy), but the Norwegian government still wants the child to be sent over and placed in foster care with some Norwegian strangers. Apparently this is a big thing in Norway and they're more prone to taking away children of foreign descent. The child is an Icelandic citizen, and in my opinion it shouldn't be sentenced to Norwegian foster care for 14 years, only seeing its mother two times a year under watch. The grandmother has taken care of the child all its life and she's seems to be a very fit parent. In Iceland, we'd allow her to take care of the child instead of putting the child through the foster system, but things seem to work differently in Norway. So, Norway is a kidnapper ^.^ An Australian TV show explains this in a show called Dateline (the episode is called Norway's Stolen Children).

@Danelaw Rutabaga is an ugly word? Think what it's called in Finnish: "Lanttu".
